        Business Outlook


        Good compensation structure. There is often money available to make improvements or hire in positions that I don't think many other companies have. Longevity and worker safety are a major priority.


        Nothing happens fast here. Everything requires a meeting. I mean everything. Might have to attend a meeting to get approval to drop a duce. They are a massive multinational company. You/your plant/team will never be a priority for good or for bad. They have no problem operating in extremely inefficient ways detrimental to the environment and are still operational in Russia with no plans to exit.

      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
